No doubt Kimi will rule in China .. Quickest lap record will always belong to Kimi Raikkonen ...

Massa is a scandal for F1 racing, he saw it was Hamilton and he ruined Lewis' race. The rule is to be with 2 tyres in the track: he was with 4 wheelds off!!! He is lucky he didn't got the black flag. Massa was frustrated by the fact that Hamilton was faster. And then the fact that Ferrari was celebrating that... They should be ASHAMED of themselves.

And the incident with Bourdais was also Massa's mistake, he should get a grid penalty for China. He was driving like: I'm Massa, I'm in a Ferrari, and you must get out of my way, NOW!! A disaster for racing Massa is, when he gets the WC... Don't know

Alonso has scored 30 points in 4 races (Spa, Monza, SG, Fuji) - not bad

+1

I think both have made mistakes this year, hamitlon with a clataclismic one in Canada and a few others ones. Massa has defied his critics his year, but still makes too many errors, but many of them due to Ferrari, who do not deserve the WDC this year for their poor decesions and pit stop safety (or rather, lack of)

@scuderiafan. yeah, probably. We turn our clocks back an hour on Oct 25

FIA should have investigated Massa and Bourdais incident in the race. Why did they leave it after the race? No makes sense at all. They had plenty of time and data to do it during the race. It's really disturbing waiting for the official results not after race is finished but after investigation is finished!

Alonso deserves it. He has had a tough year and seeing Piquet on that Hockenheim podium must have made him think :"why not me?" He has put Piquet in his place and it shows how good a driver he is.

The best bit Hamilton said was :" We both got the same penalty but I didn't hit anyone". If you get penalties for forcing others off the road, then Kovy would have got one for T1 so would a few others as would Kubica when Raikkonen tried to take him in T3. But did any1 else notice how Massa had all 4 wheels in the pit exit when he passed Webber, when you are meant to stay inside the white lines of the track?

yeah probably it is .. thx for that man :)

Massa fighting for the champion reminds me of eddie irvine back in 99 when i thought he wasn't able to be a champion and if he became he doesn't deserve it .. but things changed this year .. i think massa's pace in most of races was good but due to engine realiblty and mistakes from the team made him lost a valuble points
